What is your budget?
I would change the following:
* Remove water cooling completely until you want to OC.
* Antec 1200 seem to be overkill
* Go up to 16 GB of RAM
* Go up to 240GB SSD if you can afford it
* Switch to Corsair 200R to save money? Not the best cooling case but you aren't running that many HDD.
I should have worded my original post differently. I am mostly going to be video editing for fun. For the most part, this will be for gaming. If I am going to be focused on gaming is 16GB really necessary? I will definitely look into the weekly sales.
Thanks for your input.
